When someone enters the world of proxies, they do so with a pressing concern in their mind. Should I choose a cheap proxy or a premium proxy service? Is paying for a premium proxy worth it? Based on your warm reception of our recent cheap vs. premium VPN overview – we decided to create one for proxy services as well.
Most of us understand that there must be some value in the service to start with, or else people wouldn’t use it at all.
If you are in the market for a strong, professional proxy service, you have probably narrowed your choices down to industry leaders GeoSurf and Foxy Proxy. Here are some points to consider:
Locations: In the online advertising world, a wide selection of important locations is critical. If you sign up with Foxy Proxy’s 35 locations, you will be missing out. GeoSurf offers more than 50 locations more than FoxyProxy. To accurately test your content and advertising all over the globe, you need access to high value proxy locations.
Equally importantly, within the mighty United States market, web content and advertising is often targeted on a DMA (Demographic Market Area), or city level.
Beyond the GeoSurf Toolbar for Internet browsers, GeoSurf also offers a fast, secure, and transparent VPN connection to its many proxy servers around the globe. CyberGhost VPN also offers a similar service. When we examine both VPNs head to head, we discovered the following:
- CyberGhost offers connections only servers in 14 locations (Germany, US, Sweden, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Spain, Finland, France, UK, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, and Romania).
